In true EbonyLife fashion, the final teaser for Chief Daddy is nothing short of exceptional. The long-awaited teaser reveals the eccentric character, ‘Famzy’.
Played by award-winning rapper, entertainer and actor, Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana, Famzy is the spoiled, privileged son and heir apparent of Chief Beecroft, who turned down a role in his father’s company to pursue a career in music. With the help of his mother, played by Joke Silva, Famzy is determined to get the bulk of his father’s wealth to fund his multi-million naira ambition.
Mo Abudu, the executive producer, applauded the actor‘s performance, saying:
I don’t mean to play favourites but I love the way Falz plays the Famzy character in this film. The combination of his thuggish British accent and attitude, his overconfidence in his mediocre music and his unrealistic life goals will make him a firm favourite with viewers as well.
Chief Daddy also stars a long-list of Nollywood stars, such as Jude ‘MI’ Abaga, Bisola Aiyeola, Funke Akindele, Chinedu ‘Nedu’ Ani, Zainab Balogun, Shaffy Bello, Lepacious Bose, Ini Edo, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Linda Ejiofor, Mawuli Gavor, Kate Henshaw, Ayo Lijadu, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Beverly Naya, Uti Nwachukwu, Taiwo Obileye, Chioma ‘Chigul’ Omeruah, Rachel Oniga, Beverly Osu, Nkem Owoh, and Patience Ozokwor.
The comedy, which was written by Bode Asinyanbi and directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, will be released in cinemas on December 14th, 2018.
